dementia 2021

In an ongoing effort to improve care for patients with dementing illnesses, SFNS once again is providing the latest and most in-depth information on diagnosis, treatment and management of dementia, as well as related topics in cognitive neuroscience, to better understand the mysteries of normal and pathological higher brain function. Please join your colleagues for this world-class educational event.

On behalf of William McMullen, Ph.D., SFNS President, Steven J. Holtz, MD, SFNS Director of CME and Eric Collins,MD, Dementia Symposium Chair, due to the COVID-19 resurgence prompting an abundance of caution, great consideration for the safety of our attendees and respecting the limited institutional in-person availability of many of our distinguished speakers, we have decided to hold the 2021 Dementia Symposium as a virtual event. While we were excited to meet in-person and return to some semblance of normalcy, we are not quite there yet.

We hope to see you online!
